The main menu (and anything associated with that area) has a generally poor frame rate. It is most likely caused by the display of the menu or overlay.
Windows Vista compatibility
Known issues include startup crash, a black cover over what should be visible, and in-game crashes. The following steps fix most of these problems.
Copy unofficial patch "GIM_v1.05" (latest version, download ), and run game trought "DKII-DX.exe" (set compatibility to windows 2000)
Map editor installation
The instructions for installing the map editor are incorrect.
If it was installed in the main folder, you will receive an error message about being unable to find GlobalVariables.kwd, and will need to kill the process (as it will otherwise remain at 100% CPU).
